Badge Of Authority

   The badge worn by the majority of Village citizens has been described as being a constant reminder of authority, its number a means of identifying citizens. Well what works one way, works another. Because in The Village, having been stripped of your own name and identity, at least a numbered badge gives you some kind of identity to cling on to. Look how Number 6 reacted when he had his number 6 taken away from him in ‘The Schizoid Man.’ He fought tooth and nail to establish that he was Number 6!

Be seeing you
